There is now more Infocom content to be used! All (or at least most) of the Infocom IF game content is now available for UEFI_Zork. Hopefully the content license will permit OEMs and IBVs to bundle UEFI_Zork with this new content into new computers. Half 🙂
David Lee has apparently ported a NES emulator — without sound — to UEFI, but source code is not apparently available:
I used EDK II framework. About the keyboard input, Program reads the value from 0x60 port directly because of multi-key input processing. I measure the timer count twice(for 1sec) by using the rdtsc instruction to make game delay more accurate. I didn’t implement the audio output.
There’s a CHIP-8 emulator written for most platforms, now including UEFI. The executable uc8.efi is built using the GNU-EFI toolchain, not the Tianocore toolchain.

Usage: uc8 FILE [ROM]

About CHIP-8, Wikipedia says: ”
There are a number of classic video games ported to CHIP-8, such as Pong, Space Invaders, Tetris, and Pac-Man. There’s also a random maze generator available. These programs are reportedly placed in the public domain, and can be easily found on the Internet.”
